About Mindfulness

„Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally“. Jon Kabat-Zinn

Through mindfulness practice, we learn to consciously live the now, to appreciate and enjoy the moment in all it’s different facets. Thereby, the BEING is placed in the center and one’s breath, body, feelings and thoughts are perceived more clearly. It is a journey of discovery of oneself, accompanied by an inner attitude of curiosity, kindness, acceptance and openness. Mindfulness meditation gives you the opportunity to explore yourself, to recognize your boundaries, to center yourself, to stabilize and to get some peace.
